Kingdoms of Amalur: Re-Reckoning

Kingdoms of Amalur: Re-Reckoning received a new update addressing some issues. Here are the full patch notes translated by Perfectly Nintendo:

System: Switch
Release date: March 16, 2021
Developer: 38 Studios / Big Huge Games / Kaiko
Publisher: THQ Nordic


Some games are like fine wine and age better with time whether through sheer nostalgia, groundbreaking ideas, or art direction while others are lost in the wind or just manage to barely stay alive through a small but dedicated fanbase. Despite originally being published by EA, Kingdoms of Amalur leans more towards the latter of having that cult following. While there are many reasons for this, the game was well-received at the time, though it wasn’t exactly brought up in conversation when discussing popular western or medieval RPGs. But now thanks to THQ Nordic, Kingdoms of Amalur gets another shot in modern times with a remaster that’s worthy of a second chance, even if it is visually untouched outside of polish – at least on Switch.

Earlier this week, THQ announced that it’s bringing Kingdoms of Amalur: Re-Reckoning to Switch. The RPG will be out in just a couple of months.

Kingdoms of Amalur: Re-Reckoning will be sold physically (complete with all content on the cartridge), and we have the boxart above. Amazon is currently taking pre-orders here. For those in the UK, it’s up here.

Kingdoms of Amalur: Re-Reckoning is lined up for a March 16 release on Switch. More information and a trailer can be found in our original post here.

Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning first debuted in 2012. The new Re-Reckoning edition came out on other platforms last September, but this is the first time it’ll be appearing on any sort of Nintendo console.
